Traditional area rugs

Filling your home with endless decor including paintings, shelves, plants, and custom rugs can truly define the aesthetic you’re looking for. It can be fun, stressful, and also an endless process. Specifically accent rugs, it’s ideal to keep your floor protected while creating a beautiful atmosphere. Let’s go over how you can choose the right accent rug designed for your home:

  • Consider the Size
  • Rugs On Carpet Or Wood Floor?
  • Rug Styles

Consider the Size

Before you start shopping at your favorite home decor store or even a thrift shop, consider the size of your room. Be sure to use a measuring tape to effectively measure just how big (or how small) your new rugs should be. The rug you choose will frame your bed, living room table, hallway, or even the bathroom, you’ll want to make it fits the area well.


Rugs On Carpet Or Wood Floor?

Believe it or not, your new accent rugs can be placed on either carpet or wood flooring. Finding the right colors, designs, and patterns that will match your room is the key. If you are still on the fence of placing rugs on carpet,  try to visualize what it would look like taking into consideration the colors of your room and walls. We think rugs on carpet is a great investment, saving you money for any future carpet damage.


Rug Styles

When shopping for a new area rug, shape and color are the two factors you’ll want to focus on. Similar to choosing the size and flooring, you’ll want to consider the overall theme or decor “vibe” you’re going for. This could be rustic, traditional, or modern and minimalist. In terms of shape, you’ll want a rounded rug under a rounded table or a rectangular rug under a table or couch.
